Episode Summary

Episode 5
Meet Andrea, 29, single mom and Lasik assistant, living in Westminster, Colorado. Andrea is self-conscious about her nose, hair, breast size and especially her skin. She has a bad case of acne that started when she was in her early twenties. When she looks in the mirror she sees the memories and scars of all the hurtful names she's been called in her life. Her boyfriend, Brian, describes her as either bubbly or depressed. Andrea's afraid her insecurities will adversely affect her own life as well as the life of her young son, Zachary. She believes her relationship with Brian will ultimately end if she doesn't get a handle on her emotions forcing Zachary to grow up without a father in the home. Now meet Belinda, 28, single mom and hospice worker from Las Vegas, Nevada. Belinda used to be the pretty girl with the perfect body who everyone thought should become a model. So she did and it was great. But then she got involved in a string of abusive relationships that diminished her self-confidence and increased her weight. Now when she looks in the mirror she sees a big, fat cow. Belinda's dream is to learn that she deserves someone who will treat her well.moreless
